Scouterhorn Training and C.O.P.E. Schedule (2018)

The following are events planned for the 2018 Challenge Course (C.O.P.E.) season.
Operations training for the Scouterhorn (mobile tower) are not yet included.
This schedule is subject to change, so please check frequently. For example, Scouterhorn training may canceled due to lack of sign up, or by being rented.
This schedule is the authoritative source. If you see a conflict or error, please sent a detailed note to the committee in care of ncac.cope@gmail.com.

The “Session” events are available for booking your units. Please contact camp.snyder@scouting.org for scheduling a session at Camp Snyder (at this time, our committee only uses the course at Goshen for supporting the summer camping season and special events such as the Labor Day Family Camp).

Other events are for training or program support. All adults and older youth who are interested in C.O.P.E. are welcome to attend but please send an e-mail to ncac.cope@gmail.com at least 48 hours prior to the event in case there are changes. Events with a hyperlink have on-line scheduling. Please use register so we can be sure we have enough materials and hours.

When events are blank, the C.O.P.E. Committee does not plan to meet or provide support. If you’d like to start something, please send a note to ncac.cope@gmail.com.
